Proper diet can reduce or stop the calcification resulting in stenosis.  Exercise will strengthen compensating factors that will cause a more efficient system.  Without exercise, the stenosis decreases cardicac output and the heart can be overworked and weakened trying toi meet oxygen demand.  A stronger heart with exercise helps the heart to meet the demand effectively.
